How lucky I am that one of my favorite designers is also my neighbour?!
I’m very happy to introduce Hilde Tempelman – the super talented designer behind the ATELIER TEMPEL. Amsterdams smallest department store! (what a great name is that!). Hilde is designing accessories, handcrafted bags, scarves, bijoux, paper goods, dolls, pillow covers an other home decorations- all hand-made by her! Hilde is re-using vintage fabrics to create bags and accessories.
I love her work. It’s full with imagination, originality, sense of humor and with her amazing twist on everything she makes. A visit to the atelier/shop is a visit to a true magical place and a great opportunity to meet the wonderful Hilde in person icon smile A visit to ATELIER TEMPEL

A few weeks¬† ago I went to “Unseen”. This¬† photo fair was a four days celebration of inspiration and talent at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. Galleries from all around the world presented their work. I was overwhelmed by the diversity of ideas, techniques and subjects of photographers. Close to my heart was were the collages with different materials integrated such as paper and threads. Till next year!
The thread works are by the amazing Julie Cockburn. The tower in the photo is a real tower (!) in Hong Kong. The big portraits on the floor and walls are a part of this.
